    • WEDDING BELLS

      Parkinson - Willson

      St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church was the scene of a very pretty wedding on Wednesday afternoon when Leonie Agatha, eldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. H. Willson, Waikohu, was married to Campbell Manson, only son of Mr. and Mrs. M. Parkinson, Kanakanaia, the Rev. James Aitken, M.A., officiating.

      Dr. Irvin Moore presided at the organ.

      The bride, who was given away by her father, looked charming in her lovely frock of white souple satin, which was cut on long classical lines, and her beautifully embroidered silk tulle veil which was becomingly arranged to her head with clusters of orange blossom. She wore white satin shoes and silk hose to match, and carried an artistic shower bouquet of snowdrops and other spring flowers combined with maidenhair fern.

      The two bridesmaids, Miss Sylvia Willson, sister of the bride, and Miss Lois Gregory, looked very pretty in their dainty frocks of pink silk organdie, which were gracefully modelled, the long skirts being trimmed with long inlet frilled godets. They each wore a charming pearl beaded Juliet cap, and carried a bouquet of mixed pink flowers. Their satin shoes and silk hose were in pink to match their frocks.

      The duties of best man were ably carried out by Mr. Gerald Willson, brother of the bride, and those of groomsman by Mr. Arthur Isabeth.

      The subsequent reception was held at the Freesia Lounge, which was tastefully decorated with spring flowers. The usual toasts were honoured during the wedding breakfast, and musical accompaniments and items were played by Miss Lena Ruru, who presided at the piano.

      Mr. and Mrs. Willson, the bride's parents, received the guests, Mrs. Willson wearing a smartly tailored black costume with a black hat to match, and holding a lovely bouquet of orange tinted flowers.

      Mrs. Parkinson, mother of the bridegroom, was becomingly frocked in navy blue relieved with touches of white, worn with a fine straw hat to tone, and carried a dainty bouquet of spring blooms.

      The bride and bridegroom left later on their wedding trip, the former travelling in a smart tailored suit of flecked tweed in dark tonings, worn with a fur coat and a neat black hat.

      Mr. and Mrs. Parkinson were the recipients of many beautiful and useful wedding presents.
